When I first saw YA Contemps on Twitter I jumped for joy. Seriously. Up until this past year I've favored Paranormal and Fantasy YA, but, with all the fantastic Contemporary YA I've been reading lately, I think my favor has shifted.

I follow @YAcontemps on Twitter (@thehidingspot)
I will follow the blog when it's live tomorrow!
My favorite # is 7.

OMG!!! Three of my favourites, and one of my could-be-if-I-got-to-read-it! The latter being Hold Still by Nina LaCour, which looks and sounds amazing! (trailer, people!)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
